Set NTP on Windows Client

Set the NTP server:

> NET TIME /SETSNTP:$ip-of-ntp-server

By default, the Windows NTP client is really braindead, it just 'sets' the system clock once a day, its not a proper NTP implementation. for most users, this is fine, but realize oddities can happen like the clock being set back a few seconds such that a given time happens twice.

You can modify the time interval by editing your registry.



This will set it to update every two hours. The dword can be modified to set it for 1 hour to whatever.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
